    The American people should know that pending right now in Congress is a bipartisan bill that would virtually commit the United States to go to war against Iran if Israel attacks the Islamic Republic. “The bill outsources any decision about resort to military action to the government of Israel,” Columbia University Iran expert Gary Sick wrote to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in protest, one of the bill’s principal sponsors.

    The mind boggles at the thought that Congress would let a foreign government decide when America goes to war, so here is the language (PDF):

    < snip >

    Since AIPAC wants this bill passed, it follows that so does the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who opposes American negotiations with Iran and has repeatedly threatened to attack the Islamic Republic. Against all evidence, Netanyahu insists the purpose of Iran’s nuclear program is to build a weapon with which to attack Israel. Iran says its facilities, which are routinely inspected, are for peaceful civilian purposes: the generation of electricity and the production of medical isotopes.

    Iran is a terrorist state and a threat not only to America, Israel but to all of the world. Their goal is world wide domination through Sharia Law. Israel is an ally and we need to support them. Period.

    Burying ones head in the sand over the threat of Iran does not make it go away.

    That arguement don't wash and here's why.

    Saudi Arabia is a terrorist state and one of our bestest BFFs. Their radical Islamic mercenaries are trying to out do the Nazi's persecution and murder of the Jews RIGHT NOW by killing Christians and running them out of their homelands. Their regime change agenda is spreading Sharia Law RIGHT NOW into every middle eastern and North African country Washington does the regime change boogey in. AND Saudi Arabia is trying to buy a nuke and they aren't even trying to hide it!

    Like you said "Burying ones head in the sand" does not make reality go away. But it does make one sound alot like a hypocrite at times.

    Israel is an ally so what? That does not give our congress the right to let them decide who we wage war on.

    The biggest threat to America, Israel and the world RIGHT NOW is the regime in Washington and it's middle eastern and Israeli "allies", period!

    If you want to understand the U.S.-Iran controversy, know this: It is not about nuclear weapons.

    You’re thinking: Of course it’s about nuclear weapons. Everyone says so.

    There is a strange irony in President Obama’s announcement of the temporary agreement. He mentioned the term “nuclear weapon” multiple times in his announcement, implying that Iran was on a path to develop such a weapon. One wonders if he actually believes this or if his repeated implied accusation was a rhetorical device designed to placate his hard-line critics.

    The president must know by this time that there is no evidence that Iran has or ever had a nuclear weapons program. Every relevant intelligence agency in the world has verified this fact for more than a decade. Two U.S. National Intelligence Estimates that were made public in 2007 and 2011 underscored this.

    The International Atomic Energy Agency has also consistently asserted that Iran has not diverted any nuclear material for any military purpose.

    Even Israeli intelligence analysts agree that Iran is “not a danger” to Israel.
